Course content

Today’s military aviation platforms are complex systems and it is essential, therefore, that they are deployed and maintained in such a way as to ensure their continued airworthiness and the safety of the crew operating them. To achieve this requires engineers to be cognisant of a broad range of aerospace engineering, airworthiness and safety disciplines.

The MSc in Military Aerospace and Airworthiness has been designed to address these needs by providing a course aimed specifically at employees in the MoD, the Armed Forces and the international defence industry. It provides practicing engineers with the knowledge and skills to enable them to work more effectively in aerospace engineering, airworthiness, and safety. The course structure allows students to continue in full-time employment whilst they are studying.

Cranfield University has been at the forefront of postgraduate education in aeronautics and engineering for over 60 years, so you can be sure that your qualification will be valued and respected by employers.
